Asjes appointed interim Minister of Education

Premier AsjesWILLEMSTAD - Premier Ivar Asjes will take over the duties of the Minister of Education for next three months. He announced this yesterday afternoon during the Cabinet meeting. Earlier it was speculated that Ben Whiteman, Minister of Health, would take over the post of Education.

Rubia Bitorina was appointed Minister of Education late December 2012 in the transitional Government. In June of this year, she was again sworn in as Minister in the Cabinet Asjes. The Government did not see eye to eye with her and she resigned on August 29. After she announced her resignation she wanted to take back her decision but her party already agreed with her resignation and was actively looking for a candidate to replace her. As it seems now there are no other candidates and the Prime Minister will take over her duties for now. Since October 10 2010 there have been four Ministers of Education who left the post.
